Spread over 3 acres of area, the festival will witness numerous activities ranging from Security Dog Show, Discover Dogs Zone, Fashion Show and a dedicated Cat Zone to Off Leash Area, Dog Agility, Play Area and Temptation Alley. Pet owners will also get to explore innovations in pet care, in the form of products and services from across India and abroad. The festival is open for people who don’t have pets too, they can come and be around thousands of furry friends and get lots of puppy love.
Speaking on the occasion, Akshay Gupta, Founder, Pet Fed mentioned, “We are excited and enthralled to witness the excitement in all three cities. Our pets give their entire lives to us, it’s time we give them these two days. So, our main goal is to ensure that the pets enjoy themselves thoroughly. As always, we want to encourage adoption of Indie pets and in order to push that, the entry for the people coming with Indie pets will be completely free.”

Highlights of the festival:
Discover Dogs (More than 50 different dogs with Desis as well): This is done to fire fight one of the major problems in India – limited knowledge about different dog breeds and their needs. We want people to keep in mind various factors, while they decide to keep a pet like climate, food, prescribed area needed for dogs to run around etc.
More than 50 different breeds of dogs can be seen at the festival.
Cat Zone: Cats are agile beings and very self-sufficient. However, if domesticated, we restrict them from their potential to climb and have their kind of fun. At the cat zones, we keep cat trees and toys to ensure all cats have a fun time. We also cat-proof the area for their safety along with lots of activities for them to participate in.
Adoption Camps: One of our major goals is to promote the cause of #AdoptDontShop. To push that, we have tied up with various NGOs including CUPA, CARE and more which will be having pets for adoption at the festival.
The festival promotes the hashtag #AdoptDontShop
Security Dog Show: We set up a demo show at the festival by security dogs. A security dog is specially trained to alert you of trouble and to prevent suspicious and criminal activity through fierce barking. If an offender does enter your property, fully trained protection dogs may disable the offender, on their own or on command.
Fashion Show: This is a fun activity where the human and their pets walk down the ramp, strutting down in style. And the show stopper will walk the ramp with the actor Dino Morea.
Fun dog activities are held at event.
Shopping and more: With over 120 brands from across India and abroad, pet owners will get to indulge in the best of products and services which they usually would not be aware of.
